The Black Mirror season 7 episode stories won’t be revealed for some time, and the only thing known about the upcoming season is that a follow-up to season 4, episode 1, “USS Callister” will be one of the six episodes. It also looks like there is some intention to change things with the “Red Mirror” episodes introduced in the latest season. There has been considerable backlash against the episodes that deviate from what is expected, with some feeling that the “Red Mirror” episodes fail to match the quality of standard Black Mirror stories and existing supernatural horror anthologies.

Series creator Charlie Brooker spoke about why the Black Mirror season 6 episodes were so different, and Brooker explained that he was boxed in by the format. He shared, “I don’t want to sit here feeling like I’m in a box where I have to write an episode about NFTs or whatever’s on the tech pages today. That’s not what the show was ever intended to do.” If Brooker continues this trend for the seventh season, all bets are off on what to expect in the next Black Mirror season.
